Generation CFO

The goal of Generation CFO is to make current and future CFOs the heroes of the next generation of sustainable, high-performing businesses.

Who are Generation CFO?

We do this by creating a content-driven and experience-rich community, where ambitious finance professionals can harness and leverage the power of people, data and digital. 

We seek to be impactful, current and provocative. Our community and the knowledge they are provided with from Generation CFO is practical, inclusive, credible and relevant. 

We believe that to acquire technical and non-technical data and digital skills, individuals must practice continuous, dynamic learning and business collaboration. This is fundamentally inconsistent with the ordered culture, fixed mindset and narrow accounting-based learning associated with the accounting and finance profession.

For business to thrive in the future, there must be an alternative: A knowledge-powered community, where ambitious, big-thinking CFOs can go to learn about the boundless possibilities of people, data and digital, without constraints. That is Generation CFO.

We are recognised by all major accounting institutions as the market leader in digital education for the accounting and finance digital industry. 

We have worked with the Association of Accounting Technicians (AAT), Institute of Chartered Accountants of England and Wales (ICAEW), Chartered Global Management Accountant (CGMA) and the Association of Certified Chartered Accountants (ACCA) and Chartered Accountants Australia & New Zealand (CA ANZ).

Sewells

Sewells have been helping leaders transform their people’s mindsets and attitudes to significantly improve business performance for 58 years.

We know the most influential factor that creates the positive changes that businesses want to see is the very same thing that’s holding companies back: the way their people think, and how that drives their behaviour and the results.

Our programmes have helped leading organisations (large and small) transform their culture, their performance and their profits, resulting in true sustainable success.

And because of the outstanding results we help our clients achieve, our work usually goes beyond a single project or interaction.

Not only will you enjoy the powerful tools that bring you success long after we’ve completed our work together, but you will also be able to maximise the powerful and sustainable impact of other changes – planned and – unplanned in the future.

We work with leaders and their teams to help them master the tools and techniques to make change happen and positively move all the key dials on the performance dashboard and our specialisms include: 

Inspiring Leadership – Developing Effective leaders drives exceptional performance

Creating Positive Cultures – Engage and ignite passion in your people to make your vision a reality

Enabling Business Critical Change – Mobilise your people to rise to the challenge of successfully landing business change

Developing Winning Teams – Create high-performing tams in every part of your organisation     

Driving Profitable Sales Growth - Achieve high-impact and profitable sales growth in a rapidly changing world

A very big part of our success with helping with any of our programmes is by initially getting a crystal-clear picture of the outcomes, hard and soft, that you’d want to see as a result of any work we may do with you.

This tried, tested and trusted approach to deliver beyond our client expectations is one of the key reasons that our current Net Promoter Score (NPS) is +90.  We don’t know of any organisation specialising in helping deliver culture change, leadership, sales, teamworking and landing business-critical change into the workplace and on the to the bottom-line with anything like that level of NPS.

We’ve helped our customers achieve astounding results. Let us do the same for you.

The Payroll Centre

The Payroll Centre represents the evolution of three well known payroll training brands coming together under one roof; The Learn Centre, Payroll Alliance and Learn Payroll.

Payroll professionals need to be ever more informed, educated and supported in order to deal with the ever increasing pace of legislative, technical and other change, and The Payroll Centre’s mission is to help you, your team and the wider industry on this journey.

In addition to the breadth of courses and qualifications we offer. The Payroll Centre is the only organisation offering a corporate membership that informs, educates and supports entire payroll teams (and associated departments) rather than individual memberships. This provides unique client benefits, such as allowing the whole payroll team access to an entire range of materials and services, and the ability for the organisation (not an individual) to rely on The Payroll Centre’s advice.

The Payroll Centre sits on many HMRC and Government committees, such as the EPG, and represent many thousands of members and clients helping deliver more-valuable, and more-valued, input to help shape the future of the industry.

At the heart of everything we do is a desire to support payrollers and make sure they have what they need because we are passionate about payroll always being done right and we care about the people doing it.
